There are many wrestlers in the WWE who could have used advice from the former WWF champion. Intercontinental champion Big E seems to have a similar move set and body type as Warrior. It is a shame he couldn't have impacted the locker room more while he was still on good terms with the WWE.

There was always talk of Andre the Giant, Hogan and Randy Savage, but it seemed like Warrior was the one superstar who wasn't given credit for putting wrestling on the map. He came at the tail end of the era, but his energy was something that had not been seen until he arrived. He showed what it meant to really put your all into your character inside and outside of the ring.

While the WWE may still use the Ultimate Warrior in their video games like they have been with Savage, it seems unlikely for fans to see any new merchandise for the Warrior. There will be no new t-shirts or even arm bands.
